Cliff Jump and Swim at 'The Cove'
Washington › The Cove, Long Lake
Added by Grant Thomas
Need a spot to cool off when Spokane gets too hot in the spring and summer months? Visit The Cove! Here you can swim, cliff jump, and lounge in the sun with your friends!
With activities for everyone, The Cove at Long Lake is the perfect spot to go on a summer day!
If you are driving from downtown Spokane, drive towards Nine Mile Falls. Before entering Nine Mile Falls you will come to a dam. At the dam take a left over the bridge. Continue through the little town of Nine Mile Falls and the take a right on South Bank. Continue on this road. Eventually it will turn into a dirt road. You will come to a fork in the road, go left at the fork and continue on to the parking area! Simply park and follow the path to the beautiful cove!
At the cove there are activities for everyone to enjoy! There is a large island that is perfect for picnics, sunbathing, or chatting with your friends! If you want to get into the water you can jump off of the small rope swing that hangs from a tree. Those who are a little more daring can cliff jump. With rocks and cliffs ranging from 5 to 60 feet high, there is a height suitable for everyone! Safe cliff jumping spots can be found on the small island or at the cliffs across from the island.
Note - the water at The Cove is very deep and you should not worry about hitting the bottom if you are cliff jumping. However, be careful! Make sure you have friends watching you and do not push your limits!
Also, I do not recommend taking a vehicle with low clearance, the final stretch of road has a few pot holes!

After the long drive down FR 26, turn onto FR 2680. 6 miles down the road, you'll see what slightly resembles a trail to your left.

You can stat this adventure at one of two trailheads. I suggest using the lower of the two. The start of the trail ascends through a forest of old growth pines with periodic views of Mt Washington.
